    Hey guys,

    How much should I expect to pay roughly to have all 4 front ball joints replaced on my 74 Kombi?

    Also looking to adjust the rear suspension to get some more height as it has sagged a bit over time and now the front sits too high! I was told it was easy enough but time consuming?

    Thankyou

    A rear raise will cost around $400 from a mechanic who knows what they are doing.

    Unless he finds the shocks are shot, bolts frozen, torsion bar grommets shot, or any other item fro a long list of things that chew dollars.
    If it has sagged then I am guessing it hasn't been touched in a long time.
    Be prepared for additional costs

    Have you tried GHR in Panorama Jase?

    Not out of the ball park Supps as it includes rubbers. The question is the mileage of the bus as sag is the torsion bars giving in to gravity forces. I got 500k out of rear torsions before breakage of both & did the lot at once. Can't remember price but was under $1k for bars & seals & fitment 10 years ago. Rear only.
    Cheers
